RATINGS

95The Wine Advocate

...offers up generous aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries, cinnamon and coniferous forest floor, framed by a lavish application of creamy new oak... On the palate, the Richebourg is full-bodied, rich and multidimensional, with a lavishly enveloping attack and supple structuring tannins that are almost entirely concealed by its deep core of fruit. Long and sapid...a spectacular wine...

95Vinous / IWC

Searing tannins give the Richebourg its trademark sense of energy and vibrancy. White pepper, mint, dried flowers and bright red berry fruit are all beautifully delineated, with underlying beams of minerality and salinity...wine of brawn and pure power...

18.5+ Jancis Robinson

Light and jewelly with power surging up towards the finish. Undertow of pomegranate and autumn undergrowth. Neat and lightly chewy. Transparent and sort of weightless. Decidedly aérien!

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
